Thanks to everyone who came out to see "The Laramie Project" at Waukesha Civic. It's difficult to put my feelings into words when talking about this show. It's such a beautiful script and story, an extremely important piece of theatre, and truly was a challenge for me as an actor and storyteller. All of that on top of this being the first show I've acted in since the pandemic hit...I made new friends and grew closer to the friends I already had and because of all that, I will forever cherish my time in "Laramie". Thank you, Matthew.
As the cast and crew worked to strike the set today, the big question on everyone's lips was, "What's next?" As for me, there's nothing definitive aside from my trip to California in February. If a theatre opportunity arises and it sparks joys, I'll be there, but, for now, I'm satisfied with catching up on my writing projects, crocheting scarves for my loved ones, and watching something theatrical on Braodway HD.
